Share Your Christmas
Last year we helped 3,183 people in need through the Share Your Christmas Program.
Sponsors and donors provided blankets, clothing and toys for children. 
Help us continue to make a difference for the most vulnerable in our community. 
Your support would make this holiday season meaningful.
Volunteer of the Week
Barnes & Noble-The Streets At SouthPoint
 Durham’s Partnership for Children (DPfC)
Many communities have Barnes & Noble Bookstores, but few have one like ours.  The Barnes & Noble at The Streets at Southpoint has made an extraordinary commitment to Durham’s Partnership for Children, one that has inspired thousands of local children to read.  Each year, Barnes & Noble hosts two month-long holiday book drives for DPfC, placing children’s books close to the register and inviting customers to pick ones to donate to a needy child.  It also helps DPfC by hosting a gift wrapping fundraiser and a book fair, complete with story telling, costumed characters, and fun book-related activities.  Barnes & Noble encourages its employees to spend work time engaging in community service and has helped Cheri Hodges, the Community Relations Manager, to build a solid partnership with the group and to initiate successful early literacy projects.  Thank you, Barnes & Noble, for your generosity and your commitment to our community!
